i have problems using YAST(suse setup tool) inside uml.
my uml is kernel2.6.0-test11 with suse9 rootfs.
when starting yast(textmode), i select "software". after
selecting "Install and Remove Software" yast just sits
there and seems to hang.
when i watch this with "top" from another console,i see
there is a process y2base just consuming cpu.
if i attach strace to that process, strace shows
me:nothing :( no single system call seems to be made.
eventually, after a long time y2base segfaults and
surprisingly yast continues to work and lets me select
software packages. this is weird,isn`t it?
i have straced the uml process on the host, when yast
is just hanging. strace exits after a very short amount of
time with "SIGVTALRM (Virtual timer expired)". there
seems no relation to the segfault of y2base inside uml,
because if i reattach the strace to the uml kernel, it
gives lots of output and exits again (and so on). y2base
inside uml still keeps running and do nothing - just
i have attached the output from strace to this bug
report. any hints how to proceed further, for analyzing
